    I found the University of Texas at Arlington website. Here is for RN-BSN
    BSN Degree - UT Arlington


    Here is the continuing education for nurses
    Continuing Nursing Education UTA Division for Enterprise Development


    It looks like you have to attend one day a week to do RN-BSN but it can be done in one year of full time attendance. Darn for all of us who don't live in Texas! LOL!

    The RN to BSN degree option is designed for the registered nurse who wishes to earn a baccalaureate degree. Students are admitted each fall and spring (some distance education sites admit students in fall or spring only) following completion of 60 hours of prerequisites. Students who enroll full-time can complete the nursing courses in two semesters, meeting all day one day per week for classroom instruction. Part time options are available.

    But if I'm wrong please correct me!

    It looks like your A&P has to be within the past 5 yrs. and if not you can try to have that waived? I would not want to repeat those classes.

    I am accepted to the University of Wyoming and for some reason my English Comp I does not qualify for their Englsih I but my English Comp 2 qualified for their English 2. Also, my interpersonal communication class did not get transferred for their oral communication class where as at my college here it did count. They say I can try to test out of the english 1.
    There is a clinical component at the end but they said my current employer seems to qualify as a qualified setting for that which will work great for me as I have a supervisor RN willing to be my preceptor. I am still nervous about the online thing and things changing over time. Tuition now is $134/credit which seems so much more affordable than other places. I will have to take oral communication at my local college though, I am assuming as I don't see how I could take it online.

    The University of Wyoming was recommended to me by the nrusing dpt cordinator at the University of South Dakota where I attended. USD is an NLN gold standard school....so I trust her judgement. When I go on for my BSN..I will prabably try to go with University of Wyoming.
    That's good to hear. I am nervous about the degree online/completion and was happy to read that UofW is recommended.

    From what I was told and read on their website, there were no time limit for general ed courses. But I just submitted my application and transcripts, so hopefully within the next 2 weeks I'll know which courses they will and will not accept. But my A&P 1 & 2 is only 3 years old.

    The UofW also seemed like a very good option, due to the cost. But the extra cost and headache of going through a clinical again is what kept me from applying.

    I don't have any extra cost for the clinical portion but yeah it is an added stressor I would have preferred to avoid. I do like that the school seems to be known and has a good reputation though. Let me know how your credit transfer goes. My A&P is over 5 yrs old. Otherwise costwise that school looks good too.

    Also, all the literature they want I don't have and the Federal and Texas state government classes either. Let me know what they do accept.

    I think UT Arlington without clinicals will be cheaper than UW with, because if I work those days instead of volunteering them, I do a little better than break even. Plus my hospital will pay for some of my tuition, and pay more if I go to UT than than UW due to UT charging more per credit hour, so UT wins by a nose.

    So how do they test at U of T? Are the tests online? Some colleges you have to go out to a special testing center for your exams.

    While perhaps not the cheapest, WGU's program is one of the reasonable programs now available out there. Online University | Online Degree | Accredited Bachelor's and Master's Degrees
